WWE works best when the product in the ring is believable and, in Rousey's case, a victory over Jax is not out of the question.
Ronda Rousey will receive her first Raw Women's Championship match next month at Money in the Bank, it has been confirmed today. For one, announcing the match at the NBCUniversal upfronts with Jax, Rousey and Flair all in attendance allows for greater mainstream media attention and shines a brighter light on the company's women's revolution.
Being humble at the challenge thrown at her, Ronda felt that she was just a match old at WWE and that there are other deserving women who should be given an opportunity at the title shot. News on the red carpet. "I happily oblige respectfully, so I can sit next to her", said Rousey. While you can question the timing and execution, the added eyeballs will get WWE the result it is looking for. "All bets are off, right?"
We're professionals, so when we get in there, there's a job to be done. We all have the same goals.
WWE later confirmed the bout themselves, noting it will indeed be for the RAW Women's Championship.
Jax spoke about the match as well saying Rousey will be a unique opponent. Stephanie McMahon appeared and touted the WWE women's evolution. Let us know in the comments section below.
